“Holophotal Catadioptric Apparatus Revolving round a Central Flame.—If in place of Fresnel’s compound arrangement of trapezoidal lenses and plane mirrors there are substituted mirrors R, R generated by the revolution of a parabolic profile round a horizontal axis, all the light will be at once sent out in parallel beams by them and the lenses L, and the apparatus is therefore geometrically perfect, but metallic instead of glass agents are still employed.” —The Encyclopedia Britannica, 1910
